Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Thanks :-) Bouquets were real touch from Amanda Floral Studios in Kentucky.  I ended up substituting my bouquet (included in the Ultimate Package) for 2 junior Bridesmaids bouquets so that worked out gr8.  LOVED the runner too. We went through Jennifer @ originalrunner.com.  its neat b/c instead of the guest book that tends to collect dust afterwards - we're taking the runner with all the signatures around the wedding monogram to get mounted, framed and then we'll hang it over our fire place :-)  Glad you liked it.

Your pictures are so beautiful.  You guys both look soooo happy.  I love your bouquet and your bridemaids as well, it matches with your theme so incredibly well.  Your dress is absolutely gorgeous.  I love how you have the guests sign your runner, that is definitely an excellent idea.  I love it

OMG - it was wicked. I was in Desires and Lisa approached me.  It was TOO funny.  Both our now husbands we're looking at us like we were a little off for hugging and chatting it up with "somebody we never met" lmao As for Miss Lindsay, lets just say she's due to have a little tequila shot with me at some point.  She had me take one with her THE night before my wedding swearing up and down she would do one the night before hers lmao  Lets just say that didn't happen LOL  Probably why she was such a vision on her wedding day :-) Both such lovely ladies and it was so gr8 to meet them and put a face to a name :-)

Thank you!  I'm flattered...it really is all that it looks, amazing!  You should be SO excited.  

 

DRC did my flowers, the bridesmaids bouquets were silk and I asked Ana to match my bouquet to the bridesmaids and add some white lillies, I think they turned our perfect...I loved my flowers!  They did charge me an extra $60 for that bouquet, not sure why but I was happy with them none the less?  So maybe they were exotic flowers?  The lanterns I got through the resort as well, they were $20 a piece and I had 11 of them so it worked out to $220...they did help provide lighting once it got dark out so I'm glad I used them.  They did tend to fly off with the wind quite a bit though but the staff was very quick to chase them down and put them back up as best as they could.  Seems like the EW or Deco Cancun string of lights is a bit more stable and really nice as well but I think they are quite a bit more expensive...?

 

You should be so excited to work with Anel...without a doubt your pictures will turn out amazing...

I have two questions:

 

1. Did you get your flowers through DRC? If so, was your bouquet considered exotic? It is beautiful!!

2. Did you get the lanterns through the hotel our outside vendor and if you dont mind me asking, can you give me an approximate cost for the lanterns?

 

Thanks so much and congrats!

Lindsay,

 

Congratulations on being a MRS.  I love the colors of your wedding, one of my color is orange too and I love how the parasols and fans look in your pictures.  I was wondering where you got your veil, I really adore it.  Your dress is absolutely amazing and you look beautiful in it.  Your hair is so perfect, did you get it done at the resort?  Once again congratswoot.gif

Hey girls - so I need to vent- I email my last deposit info  to Jorge at Dreams a week and a half ago stating to him that they need to take the final deposit within 24-48 hours as my bank has the international transactions open for that amount of time. 

He emailed me back saying they would email a confirmation letter.

Well.... after 4 emails later I havent heard anything back at all and they never took my payment.  Don't they want our money!?  I just emailed Jorge and Anabell at the reservations center again a pretty stern message.  mad.gif   So frustrating and the weddings in less than a month!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
